Acupuncture Physician and Doctor of Oriental Medicine
Dr. Becky Palmer
As a dedicated and compassionate preventative health care advocate, Dr. Becky Palmer has found her life’s purpose in caring for and enhancing the quality of life in the patients she treats. She began her healing career as a Licensed Massage Therapist in upstate New York, and after fifteen years found the need to offer her patients more effective tools to achieve their wellness goals. Having personal and clinical experience seeing the success and advantages of acupuncture and natural medicine in the treatment of both chronic and acute conditions where western medicine was falling short, she chose to pursue her dream of natural medicine in sunny Florida. She graduated summa cum laude receiving the Founders Award as well as her degree in Chinese medicine from East West College of Natural Medicine. Dr. Palmer strongly believes in holistic healthcare and the fascinating science of acupuncture with its capacity to stimulate biochemical balance and to enhance our body’s innate ability to heal emotionally and physically. She specializes in musculoskeletal concerns and pain management, anxiety and depression, stress reduction, immunity, weight-loss, and overall health management. She will always work within your comfort level, integrating her treatments with the additional care or recommendations you are receiving from your other healthcare providers. As a lifetime learner she is also pursuing a second Masters degree in Health and Human Performance, and a Health Coaching certification accredited with the International Coaching Federation. She practices tradition eight principal and Japanese acupuncture and has also received additional certification in dry needling. She is excited to be working as part of the team at Lakewood Ranch Acupuncture and Wellness.
